The book is filled with typographical and grammatical errors, the text is pedantic and verbose, and the general tenor of the discussion is one of ambivalence. Fischer does little to clarify the often murky aspects of the law of Remedies, and often contradicts himself within the same pages. It is endlessly repetitive and tedious reading that might have been instructive at one-fifth the length.

The author appears to have a knack for making overly complicated that which should be easily grasped , eschewing the readily comprehensible in favor of a profusion of arcane terms of art, circular reasoning, and needlessly drawn-out redundancies. Like Clarence in his Malmsey he lurches to and fro, chapters marked by an airy, over-the-river-and-through-the-woods approach that seldom leaves the reader feeling any more informed than he was before he started. And as a previous reviewer noted, the tome is riddled with typographical and grammatical errors which do little to ease the put-upon reader's sense of frustration. Repeated and highly focused attempts at critical reading succeeded in educing little more than a profound sense of mental lassitude, with nary a smidgen of enlightenment to reward my efforts. As the ashes settle, I find this little more than an errant vanity work foisted upon the captive audience unfortunate enough to have it assigned as a text.

As a fan of the "Understanding" series generally, it pains me to say that I must agree with the other reviewers: this supplement is quite poor. After attempting to read through its many pages of convoluted discussion, I had to give up and purchase another supplement--the only time I have ever purchased two supplements for a single subject.

Well this was the textbook our professor assigned for Remedies but I would have much rather preferred a different book instead (Maybe the E&E series). Usually I find the "understanding" series to be helpful, but NOT in this case. The text is lengthy & confusing. It is not in an "easy to follow" format. In other texts you at least get a clear way to outline. Things are usually italicized for easy reference. But NOT HERE!

Not helpful at all!!!

Get the DOBBS Remedies treatise & Common Law Pleading by Koffler ( for a lucid exposition on the old writs ) - there are non better .. I think this is one of the worst outlines I have ever read - useless -
